3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jet black oily pour with a dark tan cap. Strong smoked wood and chili pepper aromas. Sweet, spicy and smoky. The TR chili heat really catches you at the back of your throat. Wow this really heats up your mouth and slaps you around. Hints of chocolate and coffee are present but the chili lingers long after you swallow and I suspect will linger for the rest of the weekend. Texas Ranger is a massive, earthy beer with a huge amount going on. It's incredibly intense and enjoyable, but I wouldn't dare crack another straight after one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a deep black with an enormous mocha head that dissapated slowly leaving intense lacing. Aroma includes roasted malt, smoke, and pepper. Taste begins with coffee and roasted malt before bakers chocolate is introduced leading to a peppery finish with slight chipotle burn on the throat. Nice mouthfeel with smokiness and relatively intense chipotle flavor/burn lingering. Chipotle should have been better balanced (e.g., Stone 11/11/11 blending green chili).

Outstanding chili beer. Nice black color with tan head. Scent is smoky with maybe a hint of the peppers. The spiciness comes out in the aftertaste; the taste itself is that of a nice porter.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown/black with a minimal head. Aroma not as smokey as expected, dark malts and chocolate dominates. Perfect amount of chilies, the heat from the chipotle increases with every sip without taking over. For stouts I prefer a heavier body so if this would have been an imperial stout I would have appreciated it much more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow, as a realy dark beer this comes on nose surprisingly not roasted malt or burnt dominant, instead aroma seems like smooth balance between spices, noble hopping, creamy, a bit coffe, burnt sugar light sweet, a bit smoked and olny then roasted malt. Pours black with huge brown tan cap, good rounded lacing with good stamina. Elegant! Taste is galacticly far away sweet, burnt or roasted bitter, also medium hopping bitter I sense, and od course spicy, peppery profile. Palate - above mediyum body, oily texture, overruned spicy, a bit astringent on tongue, soft carbonation, long , bitter mild dry finish. O.A. - well it is not beer for everyday, no doubt. Brewed nicely seems to me although it is one time sample, cause peppery id so dominant, it is difficult to enjoy this beer.

Pours jet black with tanned head. Roasted malt and some coffee on the nose. Little sweeter taste than I was expecting with dark chocolate and quite a spicy finish that lingers. Pretty interesting beer, quite enjoyable
